After the Louvre we walked around the Jardin des Tuileries and enjoyed ice cream. For dinner we stopped at a really neat little restaurant and had an excellent dinner served in courses.
The whole day was wonderful, but for me the best part came at the end. We took another boat ride down the Seine, only this time at night. It was a whole different experience from doing it during the day. We saw the lights of Paris on the banks and then again reflected in the water. I particularly enjoyed going under the lit up bridges, but the best part was getting a close up view from the water of the radiantly glowing Eiffel Tower. "Wow. That's astounding," Dad said. I couldn't agree more.
Dad's favorite part of today: Seeing night come to the ciy.
